Is the United Nations “The Wild Beast” of Revelation 17 and 18 in the bible?Feb 28th, 2012 | By admin | Category: Questions You Ask (click for the full answer)
The beast of Revelation ties in with the last beast of the Image in Daniel 2 and 7.
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Rev 13:5-7 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (tying in these scriptures lets us know who this woman is–as you stated a woman represents a church–this woman was protected by God.)
Here we see 1260 days in common (time times and 1/2 times is the same as 1260), we also see that it wears out the saints. Does the Inquisition ring any bells? (Rev. 12 describes those saints). They change times and laws….who does that remind you of?
Can’t be the United Nations because they haven’t been around long enough. The 1260 (which is also 3 1/2 years, 42 months–in other scriptures), is 1260 years. Using a day for a year as we have precedent in scripture.
So what Civil system has been around for 1260 years wearing out the true saints of God and changing times and laws?
Did you know the early Church celebrated the Memorial of Jesus’ last supper at the time of Passover? When is it celebrated now? Easter. God informs us that Jesus is our advocate and that we have direct access to Him through Jesus–yet this ancient church teaches you cannot get to God except through them. They even have the head of their Civil government titled “God on Earth”, “Vicar of Christ”.
I am sure you can come up with a whole list–I have seen lists of their changes to God’s Word many times.
The United Nations will come under the umbrella of the Papacy–because the Papacy is pushing for a global financial system–they say in one breath the UN should oversee it, then in the next–that they are the most trusted and have a long history of managing world affairs.
There is a difference between the Papacy and the Catholic Church. The Papacy is civil–it is its own government and state. The Pope is the head of both. The Woman that rides the beast is the Catholic Church. She is a whore because she gets mixed up in politics and other civil governments instead of focusing on God alone.
Both are going down. But there will be an hour of power, they will come back into power and try to regain what they lost a millennia ago. But we are promised it won’t last long. It will last long enough for her to finish her mission of wearing (destroying) out the saints–the remaining body of Christ will be completed under this hour, then the marriage can take place, and then she and the beast will be destroyed.
